DB Awards 2016: a report on the winners

Man of the Year

Troy ChristensenTroy Christensen, CEO at Enotria & Coe

Renowned for a strong accent and an equally strong handshake, Troy Christensen has achieved an immense amount since returning from the US to London almost exactly two years ago.

Coming back to Britain in May 2014 to take up a post leading one of London’s leading drinks suppliers, just over a year later he oversaw the ambitious integration of two businesses – something he successfully achieved in under six months with minimal disruption to either operation.

Indeed, our Man of the Year identified huge opportunities through the union of two London-based operations to create a unique wine and spirits distributor with an integrated supply chain, and a compelling portfolio – which was shown to maximum effect for the first time at a tasting at the Truman Brewery earlier this year.

Already well-respected throughout the industry for his leadership skills, our winner had previously spent 14 years at the UK’s biggest wine company – Constellation – engineering several big-brand joint ventures and the construction of Europe’s largest bottling facility.

However, since he undertook the challenge to grow Enotria’s business, his profile has caught the trade’s eye due to his clear, confident strategy, not only for Enotria & Coe but for the drinks industry as a whole.
